Amid Coffeepots

Amid coffeepots and Cranmer's collects,

you appear, radiant woman of Cambridge,

from the pages of the Shir HaShirim,

the hundred thousand spirals of your hair

moonlight spooling above quizzical glasses,

your smile a thurible of praise for the Holy,

your thin frame a taper in a dark sanctuary,

your feet quite modest in sensible sneakers!

The sneakers says it all! When the lofty are connected and exude grounded familiarity that fosters intimacy and warmth. Coffee also helps.
